seems to be getting a little tedious, but here are some rejections from the last batch of pics. i understand why they rejected some of them, but it just doesnt seem justified. cant explain it [then again, thats how everybody feels about their own pics...]
-if its badmotive for the top of the building [with all the bird crap], i can crop that out. as for badexposure, its obviously because its not the brightest of pictures. i think the light has a nice effect, but i guess i should go brighten it then...

here's what i think.....
1- the building is in the way, so i understand the badmotive
2- i don't see anything wrong with that pic, but the cargo door is open.
3- the quality is kinda dull, maybe its my crappy lcd.
4- you caught too many rampies in the picture. and dude, don't call us lice.
5- this pic i don't get.
6- you have a lot of clutter, a lot of rampies and the open cargo door. so i kinda understand the badmotive.
here's a tip, wait to take the pic until right before the plane is pushed back. then everything will be out of your way. ususally everything will be moved from the gate when a plane is buttoned up. only the tug will remain.
if you can, you should try to ask the rampies to move. be nice, but we always did. i know it's not happening through the glass in the terminal, but this is for future reference.

I agree with what Cancidas said, especially with technique. I just want to know how the heck you got some of those shots? They look good, one thing I am learning is that these screeners will only help your shots look better. If at first you don't succeed, try again. I am looking forward to more of your shots in the DB.

Why are you making life hard for yourself?? The quality of the photos is pretty decent, but this site, as is noted in another thread, does not like ramp lice photos. You can like the photos, I can like the photos, Joe Blow might like them...but Johan has told the screeners that he does not like them, so unless it is something really special there is small chance that a photo featuring lots of ramp equipment/personell etc...will be accepted.
Focus your energy elsewhere and you will have much more success.

I agree with all the bad motives. Have you ever read what bad motive means? Bad Motive = "What is the point of this picture, as I can't tell..." or "why did you take this picture?"
composition, lighting, angles, clutter, ...all could be improved, I think that is what they are trying to tell you with those rejections in my opinion.
It appears you are trying to hard.
I had a reject today as well..
More of a place overlooking an airport, then an airport overview, but I thought it might have had a chance. The Chapel at the U.S. Air Force Academy, It kind of overlooks the field where the AF cadets learn to fly. Oh well...

I would comment, but i've got to go out. I totally agree with Charles and Cancidas, alot of them are unmotivated closeups that aren't really needed, plus some of them are in shadows with bright parts, and there are ramp lice all over alot of them.

-does it remind you of this?:
Yes, it does remind me of that... And that's half the problem - too much like the other one. The other half the problem is that the airplane's to the right of the frame and you've chopped part of an engine off.
With respect, suggest you take a few more complete airplane pics before you start trying to get too clever with parts and things... Basics right is the first challenge.
